Spring is Coming: Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Finder

Spring is coming!

With Spring almost here, we will all feel the call to perhaps experience a new setting and opportunity – both inside and outside!  For those of us living with cancer, we can feel relegated to rigid schedules, more often spent in medical facilities, transportation vehicles, and the confines of our own homes. PLUS, it has been a long, cold, wet winter which can wreak havoc with our best intentions of being involved more in the outdoors and in life! We look forward to Spring!

Recently I found an app that lists parks pools, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor activities, etc. operated by the Philadelphia Recreation Department. Clicking on each location provides contact info. It is interactive. And it gives great information about MANY activities. Pretty cool.  Try it and Enjoy it!

Here’s the app: https://www.phila.gov/parks-rec-finder/#/locations  

We realize that often families come with loved ones to appointments, and need some family friendly activities. Last year we developed a flyer of Things to Do While visiting Philadelphia. This flyer gives many resources as well as opportunities that are NEAR to the Cancer Center.

Here is a copy of that flyer: http://things_to_do_in_philadelphia_flyer.pd

Other sites, which give information about the larger Philadelphia area, that you may wish to look at include: www.uwishunu.com and www.visitphilly.com.

There are many opportunities for a wide variety of energy levels. We hope these options can help inspire you with some possibilities! Now, go and get ready for Spring!!!

Oh yes, all of us enjoy a Spring wake up!
